Talk about a baaa’d trip. Residents in the once-quiet village of Rhydypandy, U.K. are concerned that sheep may have found their way into marijuana plants that were dumped in the area after an illegal cannabis factory was closed down by police. Part of the reason for the concern is that flocks of sheep have suddenly begun roaming through the village, breaking into people’s houses, eating their gardens and defecating on their property. “I dread to think what will happen if they eat what could well be cannabis plants – we could have an outbreak of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village,” County Councillor Ioan Richard said. The marijuana plants have since been removed, but it remains unclear if the sheep ever ate them.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all. TJ Khayatan, 17, was checking out the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art when he noticed some of the exhibits seemed a little unimpressive. In particular, there was a stuffed animal placed on a grey blanket that didn’t seem particularly creative. So, to test if people would in fact try to interpret anything if it was placed in an art gallery, Khayatan put a pair of glasses on the floor to see how people would react. The result? Entire groups of spectators crowded the “exhibit” for photographs.

They don’t call them “safe spaces” for nothing. The University of East Anglia in Norwich, U.K. has decided to ban the throwing of mortarboards after a growing number of graduates had reported injuries as a result of the falling hats. Now, instead of throwing the pointy headgear into the air, the university is asking students to mime the throwing action in their photographs instead, and have the mortarboards digitally added later.
Step aside, Princess Peach. Carol Howarth of the U.K. recently visited a nature reserve and had no idea that when she got back in her car, a queen bee had taken refuge inside. Nothing really seemed amiss until she stopped at a shopping centre, where thousands of bees suddenly swarmed her vehicle. Beekeepers were called in and the bees were removed, but by the next morning, the colony had returned. After a second round of careful removal, the bugs appear to be gone for good. There’s no word on what happened to the queen.
What could possibly go wrong? A party marketed for students celebrating the end of the school year in Florida raised the eyebrows of many parents after they learned it’s being hosted at the King of Diamonds Adult Entertainment Complex. The event costs $15 or $30 if you want the VIP experience (VIP experience?!). The promoter of the event has said he has taken steps to make sure the strippers present will be “appropriate dressed” and that all stripper poles will be removed. Still, parents say the event isn’t suited for students. Hundreds of tickets have already been sold.
